The Machine:
A fully aerobatic, very-light Jet that compares to the Bede BD-5J, but heavier and sporting two instead of one TRS-18 turbojets. Up to Mach 0.47 and 650 NM of range, with a service ceiling of 25000ft. A low stall speed (for a jet) makes the aircraft good for short field operations.
Certified for VFR operations only, yet includes a good avionics suite. 
This is a "Classic" aircraft featuring "Steam" gauges and radios. Yet, controls and systems are easy to operate.

The History:
The C-22J is the last aircraft to be adorned with the legendary Caproni name. Originally known as "Caproncino", then marketed as "Ventura". A very-light jet developed in the 1980s as a military trainer, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft. Powered by two TRS-18 turbojets fed from a dorsal NACA intake, the aircraft reached Mach 0.47 and was fully aerobatic. The airframe shows its origin in a glider design, the Caproni A-21 Calif. After the merger with SIAI Marchetti, the project was cancelled in favor of the SF-260.

The Simulation - 3D Model:
This aircraft ships with a 3-D cockpit, that incorporates realistic night lighting, in the form of a dim dome flood light, backlit gauges and luminous digital displays. The flight crew of 2 is affected by your input in the payloads menu of Flight Simulator, allowing to choose between male, female or empty seats.

The Simulation - Realism:
This aircraft has been tuned with the invaluable help of Engineer Carlo Ferrarin, who created the real aircraft. Unique and one-off documentation has been kindly provided, and used extensively, for the creation of this product!
Just like the real aircraft, the systems are simple and of easy operation. Engines can be started with the press of a button. Systems modelling allows the following of real-world checklists as closely as Flight Simulator allows. An in-sim checklist is included, as well as a full flight manual.
The flight model is tuned with advanced aerospace techniques, resulting in a highly realistic aircraft, yet, it is very pleasant to fly, both during aerobatic displays or "A to B" cruising.

Highlights:
- High-Resolution 3D cockpit
- Full Documentation
- Aerobatic

Compatibility:

- Flight simulator (2020, PC) (Sim Update VII Tested)
- VR Tested

What a gem! This is not only fun to fly but flies accurately, has pretty much all of its systems in place and a decent range for such a small jet. This is such a fun VFR-only jet. I have several different aircraft and most are fairly high(er) fidelity for this sim and this is certainly up there. It is worth every penny. I've paid a lot more for aircraft that are hardly updated but for 10 dollars this developer did it right. They even updated a few textures. There is no garmin or special avionics suite in here...just radios and analog gauges. Makes it even more fun to fly!

Such a great price for such a cool little jet. Has quickly become one of my go-to planes. Devs did a great job with this plane. I was lucky enough to get it on special but even at full price, it's a no brainer. The textures aren't top tier but definitely better than a freeware plane. Strongly recommend trying this one out!

Best value - fun, quality, for 10 bucks? GET IT. I've wasted far more money on things I no longer fly. But not this one. It's a blast. MAKE SURE you find the speed brake. It's fast and I like to fly it slower and needed for landing.

My Secret Crush of MSFS!

As a retired Naval Aviator, I did all my IFR training in aerobatic turboprop aircraft (the T-34C Turbo Mentor), and subsequently all of my IFR flying (a substantial amount in the thousands of hours) on the steam gauges of 60's and 70's era military machines. This Ventura is not only a hoot to zoom across the tree or cloud tops horizon to horizon, but it is also very, very impressive in the night IFR environment.
Do yourselves a favor for Christmas 2021. Buy this. Get familiar with how she handles in some fun VFR scenery.
Then plan you a challenging night IFR flight from your hometown to a distant city you've wanted to visit, call up clearance delivery, get your climb-out instructions, twist in that squawk code, and feel that helmet-fire as you let down from 15000' to your IAF on a VOR/DME arcing approach to minimums...

Great airplane and very good work on the POH which even include some original documents. Detailed checklist and POH. It flies very well and is gentle to maneuvre. Radio navigation (no GPS) and no autopilot, but again, the plane is pretty easy to pilot even on long stretches. A must have if you are interested by rare and special aircrafts.

I'd meant to review this little monster a couple of months back. Without a doubt this deserves all the superlatives. It's fun, fast, a pleasant handful, elegant and a sheer joy to take to the virtual skies in. I've done flight legs across Australia in it, as well as noodling about Europe and the States so in spite of appearing otherwise, it's a magnificent sight-seeing aircraft to boot. IMHO this Caproni-Vizzola is a beautiful labour of love and a must have for anyone who just loves the old school immersive rush of flying in MSFS2020.

Bummer I bought before the sale. FUN jet and I'm not a Jet fan (I have 2 larger jets) but this one is fun. Great for sight seeing. I really enjoyed it when I slowed it down with the speed brake lever. Love the cockpit view and unobstructed view forward and sides. MUST HAVE AT THIS PRICE.

Fantastic airplane! Very Italian - tiny, elegant, a bit messy, but very cool. This is a 60s jet trainer that unfortunately never really took of commercially.
The author has delivered top quality at a very fair (as in: low) price. This is a blast to fly. It's a 60s airplane with VFR instrumentation only, no GPS. It's a great step upwards if you have maxed out your advanced GA plane like a Mooney, Bonanza, or dual engine props, and you're looking for the next challenge, but it should still be remotely realistic and not completely nuts like a fighter jet. I love to use it for low-level VFR sightseeing and going places quickly but while still seeing where I go along the way. You can let the simulator do the hard work and just blast around at 200 knots, or you can fly by the 77 page manual and the extensive checklists and learn it for real.

The airplane is tiny. On the tarmac, you're below the ramp agents' eye level. Seated like in an Italian sports car, you feel like you're sliding on the tarmac on your butt. The cockpit looks fantastic, exactly the worn out, messy, vintage look that I love about old airplanes.
Once you get the hang of it, it's a blast to fly. Great view, two jet engines, speed brake, stalls at 70 knots but can go over 250 knots at 10K ft. Complex operation, full manual with original diagrams and illustrations.

This is a study-level aircraft that is realistic but fun to fly, very versatile, looks great and is a steal at below 10 bucks. Get it if you're into vintage VFR flying but want something to challenge yourself that has a bit more oomph but isn't ridiculous.

Great aircraft, fast, great for learning to fly VFR / IFR.
Very nice, perhaps the only flaws are the internal textures (which I was told, however, that the creator is already working on the 4k textures) and the slightly loud sounds.
Excellent price quality!

Absolute joy to learn and fly, simple, fast, fun and challenging all in a small package! Like an Italian Fiat Abarth for the skies. Please buy it and support this one man company and its great product! Don't worry for the textures and low res polys, Mr. Noriega is working on updating them in the future! All in all, a great product at a great price! Enjoy!

...che dire...Ogni volta che vado al museo di Volandia e arrivo davanti al C-22J inizio a sbavare come un matto :D ed ora eccolo qui!
Certo, le texture degli interni non sono il top ma volarlo è una goduria e alla fine si resta appagati.

Superb vs Cost.

Nice "simple" acrobatic jet to tootle about in at 200knots.

Textures are very P3D quality and not up to MSFS native standard.

VR (quest2) has night light "z fighting" problem on dials.

apart from those minor niggles the aircraft is vast amounts of fun in a VFR way.

it feels like a luxury Bede J5 and is very seat of the pants.

I can't recommend it highly enough at this orice range.

buy it.

This is a quality product. It looks and sounds great, flies great for the most part, and is just a lot of fun. It also has the full POH from the real plane included, as well as a quick-start guide. The sim version seems to match the POH specs quite closely. Very impressive all around given only 2 prototypes were ever built and that was 40 years ago.

Think of this plane as a Pitts or Extra 300 on steroids due to its jet engines. But then you can pop out the speedbrakes and drop into relatively short fields. Its speed, maneuverability, and view from the cockpit make the C-22 an ideal plane for harassing other MSFS players flying anything piston :). There are a few caveats, however...

First, this plane shares a post-SU5 (1.18.x) problem with many other non-Marketplace 3rd-party planes: the direction of the elevator trim AXIS (not buttons) is reversed compared to all the stock and marketplace MSFS planes. Not a MAJOR problem and easily corrected with a few clicks in the control options, but then you have to remember to change it back before flying something else. If you don't use the elevator trim AXIS, then this isn't a problem for you at all.1

Second, the plane is QUITE squirrelly at high speed on the ground in any sort of crosswind, such as just before rotation and just after touchdown. But I figure this is realistic given the narrow track and short wheelbase of the LG. Just be ready for this. At lower speeds, ground handling is no problem at all. The POH says not to use differential braking to turn but you really don't need to as the rudder pedals provide plenty of steering.

Third, the plane requires A LOT of aileron trim to fly straight. I don't understand why because it's a jet with engines essentially on the centerline. It seems wind-related as every time you make a major course change (and thus change the angle of the wind on the plane), you have to retrim the ailerons (a lot). I don't think this is how it's supposed to work.

Finally, just remember this plane is day/night VFR-only, so while its ceiling is FL250, you can't legally go that high. And there's no glideslope needle, no de-ice system, and no autopilot (and it really doesn't trim out to fly hands-off very well). This is a plane for zooming around visually in fair weather carrying yourself, your significant other, and a picnic basket, without time acceleration. Don't ask more of it than that and try really hard to avoid crosswinds on takeoffs and landings.

Was looking for a small jet gliding low and slow for looking at ground detail but also for jetting into the clouds.
I always liked the old style instruments and this one really ticks all the boxes. I can't add more than the other
reviews telling. For the price anyway. it's a joy to fly, the sounds and visual effects are fantastic with 8KX.
My favourite aircraft so far. Great job!

This is one of the most impressive MSFS debuts yet. A highly affordable and unique aircraft with superb attention to detail, comprehensive systems, checklists, extensive documentation, great modeling and mostly great texturing, good sounds including attenuation, great night lighting. The flight model seems to match the manual, so be sure to read it because this bird can get spooked at the edge of the envelope and you will have a bad time if you're not prepared. I'm hooked and eagerly awaiting more from Mario!

while the c22j is aesthetically dated, its visuals are still decent, especially considering it has both rain effects and visual icing (something few addon planes bother to add). its performance seems realistic and its flight characteristics feel appropriate for a plane of this size, and not overly easy to fly, it will stall on you if you let it. for what appears to be an obvious port, this aircraft is more than fully functional and if it were to receive a full retexture, it'd easily be worth atleast $20.
